    Hi guys,

    I have printed my labels at the US printer as they do special recycled, recyclable labels with recycle-compatible adhesives.
    Unfortunately, now I am stuck with a massive freight bill. Last time I printed with them, the cost of shipping was only about $150, and the exchange rate was good then.
    Now, I have printed more, 2 boxes x 25 pounds each. The cheapest option they suggested was UPS for $385USD. That’s about $650 for shipping, adding 32 cents to each label I am going to put on a product I wholesale for $12.

    They said they don’t recommend any other shipping methods like US post as there will be no tracking or insurance.

    Does anyone know of a reliable courier that is not so expensive, to delivery from US?

    Hi [USER=63982]@PlanJapan[/USER]
    I was once in your circumstances. Try https://shopmate.auspost.com.au/
    I bought from several suppliers from US and get it delivered to Shop Mate who will ship back to Australia.
    https://shopmate.auspost.com.au/our-rates/shipping-rates

    Your rate is Book (i assumed as labels are similar to book category) so
    $22.95 + $4.95*22 = $131.85

    It takes less than 2 weeks to receive, Not too bad !
